“…(the plaintiff) suffered broken heels and ankles in both legs, three broken bones in her lower back and multiple lacerations and bruises following the April 23 stairway collapse…the defendants were negligent by â€œspecifically allowing or creating a hazardous condition in the stairwell of the premises by failing to ensure that the steps were safe for use …â€ She also alleges the owners and manager should have known about the unstable stairwell. She is asking the court to award her $200,000 in medical expenses, $500,000 for pain, suffering and mental distress and $400,000 for future impairment to earn a living…”
A woman who was injured earlier this year after an external stairway collapsed at Richmondâ€™s Super 7 motel suffered serious injuries that may make it impossible for her to work again, according to a lawsuit she has filed. Amanda R. Williams is suing the owners and operators of the motel, Richmond Host LLC and Alisha LLC, and the motelâ€™s local manager, Paul Patel.
Williams said she must wear a back brace and is â€œconfined to a wheelchair.â€ Both her legs are in boots, and she is under the care of a orthopedic doctor and a neurosurgeon in additional to receiving physical therapy, according to her suit.
